*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default How To Display Images in a Post

You can insert a photo in the body of your message by selecting the "insert image" icon, and then entering the URL (Web site address) of the image you want to display.

When you are composing a message, the "insert image" icon will be located just above the message box. It is a yellow square with two mountains and a sun.

Note that images displayed in the body of your messages must have already been uploaded to another Web site. You will not be able to upload message images to the SkateLog Forum web site.

Does anyone have any advice/tips for image hosting sites? I am still learning about how to post images in the forum. What is the best site for hosting? What is the optimal size for images to be? Thanks in advance.

pbase.com or flickr.com there are probably others out there.

800x600 or so is a good "large" size.

800x600 is pretty wide for the forum, because it will cause horizonal scroll bars to appear, which can be annoying when you are trying to read the messages after that post. 400 pixels is a good width for posting in the forum. If you want to go much larger then that, its probably best to post a smaller picture in the forum and link to the larger version.

I recall that photobucket.com was a pleasant free site that allowed display of images on other sites. It had a box after uploading a picture that the image url(web address) could be copied directly from...

The best free hosting site for images is Imageshack.com, because in photobucket they smallen your picture if its over a certain size (I cant rember what size) ane image shack doesn't.

True, but for forum posting, this size reduction could be benificial as it wouldn't be neccessary to figure out how to reduce the size of very large images from a digital camera? A matter of preference, I suppose.

I haven't actually used photobucket in a few years so I don't remember exactly how it works...
